Fantastic Hotel and ambiance

We booked here because it's claimed to be the most haunted hotel in NOLA. We didn't experience any of that, but it was a fantastic stay. Jerome at the front desk checked us in. Super friendly and informative. He also told us about the unique 10pm service in the lobby of PB&J sandwiches with hot chocolate. This was a super unique and fun part of our stay. Paula at the front desk was also very pleasant and helpful checking out. One complaint was with loud and drunk patrons that the security/desk staff would not address. This was so bad that there was a drunk woman in the men's restroom that, when I asked her to leave, she just shouted profanities. Security did not do anything about this until the same group of people moved to the hallway outside our room to continue their arguments. At that point, security finally stepped in. There was also a lack of professionalism with the valet. We had a flight to catch, but the valet didn't even notice us standing and waiting for him while he stood on the corner looking up and down the street for apparently no reason. We didn't even know he was the valet until we went to the front desk and they called him.

We would still stay here again, likely, because of the unique environment, beautiful lobby and rooms, and proximity to Canal and Bourbon St.

Beautiful Hotel - Great Couple of Days

I saw this hotel many years ago while working in NOLA and staying at another hotel. At the time, just walking through the lobby impressed me. I recently stayed two nights at the La Pavillion and it was everything that I remembered. The exterior of the building is beautiful, statues, columns and imposing front horseshoe driveway. The lobby is from an other era - ornate and over the top stunning. The two elevators have been upgraded but still retained the dial type floor display. My room - on the 4th floor, facing north was perfect. Everything worked, TV, electrical outlets, coffee maker and fridge while the shower was large with lots of hot water. I ate breakfast twice - they were fairly priced, promptly served and delicious. The evening custom of providing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is a treat. This is not a business friendly, efficient hotel, rather it is for someone who wants another experience. If I had the occasion to return to NOLA I would stay in this hotel exclusively.
